DELIVERY DELAYS – FORT MCMURRAY – Wednesday, May 4, 2016

The impact is widespread and devastating as a massive wildfire in Fort McMurray, Alberta remains out of control. “All of Fort McMurray is under a mandatory evacuation order,” said the Government of Alberta in an emergency alert late Tuesday.
More than 80,000 people fall into evacuations zones, making it the largest fire evacuation in Alberta’s history, surpassing the destructive Slave Lake fire from five years ago.
“Fort McMurray hit 32.6°C, a record high temperature for that day,” says The Weather Network’s Chris Murphy. “The other story was the winds. The fire southwest of Fort McMurray, accompanied by winds out of the southwest helped to blow the fire right across town with winds gusting upwards of 30-40 km/h.”
Fire crews expect another challenging day with erratic fire behaviour Wednesday as temperatures remain hot and conditions extremely dry.
Air quality advisories also remain in place for the Fort McMurray area as smoke from the wildfire is producing poor air quality and reduced visibilities.
“Hot and dry weather conditions are forecast into Thursday. High levels of particulate matter may persist locally until the fire is extinguished or controlled,” Environment Canada warns. “Individuals may experience symptoms such as increased coughing, throat irritation, headaches or shortness of breath. Children, seniors, and those with cardiovascular or lung disease, such as asthma, are especially at risk.”
Maritime will continue to update you as in the information becomes available. Please note that all deliveries on indefinite hold, until further notice.
